Today is my mom's birthday. 70 yrs young:) For my April cottage I made an addition.
I stitched a tribute to my mom including her name and initials. I also had stitched her birthday but not the year. When I showed her she said " I want you to add the year I was born. I'm not Nannie". Her mom, my grandmother, is 98yrs old. Yes still going strong. My Nannie does not like to talk about her age. She says "You are as young as you feel. I feel young." God bless her.
So I added my mom's year of birth. I did not use any alphabet chart for this, I just made it up as I was stitching - from my heart.
So today my mom woke up to her brand new chocolate brown recliner chair from us ( a Lazy- Boy brand). I got it last evening and she loves it. But today (her birthday) was the first morning she woke up to it. A yellow banner also welcomed this morning her saying "Happy Birthday", breakfast form Mac Donald's (I want her eat so I get her whatever sounds good to her). She does not want any cake, so I just got back from a local bakery and brought her her favorite raisin snail. And today is her best friends birthday - DeeDee. So I delivered to her door a box of her favorite "Brownie Cookies" & a vanilla cupcake from the same bakery.
Tomorrow we find out mom's results. We are all still feeling a special peacefulness. I know this is directly from all your precious prayers. Always with Love and Appreciation - Annette of California
